What brand is this shower valve


We're remodeling our walk-in shower. However, I don't know the brand of the shower valve and I don't have the handle or shower head. I've searched for images of common brands, like Moen (which is what the rest of the showers in the house are), Kohler, etc.

I have more pics if that will be helpful.

it does look like a Moen. Any reason to think it is not?

If you plan on just rebuilding it, it's got to come out anyway. Remove it and take it with you to match it up at the store.
PS Is that just sheetrock on that wall? If so big mistake.
And that hole does not look big enough to reinstall the trim.

That does look like an old Moen. I'd seriously consider upgrading to at least a pressure balance valve

I've never remodeled a bathroom without replacing the whole valve.
Whole lot easier to do it now, and the parts are not going to get any easier to find later on.

Thanks for all the responses. I didn't think it was a Moen because it didn't look like any of the pictures or videos I could find about replacing a Moen catridge thingy.

Yes, that's drywall, but it has gotten backer board over it since this picture was taken.

I contacted Moen and it is one of their. Apparently any of the posi-temp handles will work with it.

By this do you mean you replaced the drywall with backer board? because you don't want to put the backer board over the drywall.
